1987: It Was a Very Good Year by @ebsnare

On 13th February this year I will be 25, a whole quarter of a century old. To celebrate, I’m having a year of doing amazing things – at least 25 to be precise – including visiting foreign countries, dressing up once a month, getting tattooed, moving house, and generally having a brilliant time.

This playlist feature songs that were all in the charts during the year of my birth, 1987, and have been put together for the purposes of celebration. Enjoy yourselves this year, however old you are, and make sure you:

Stand by your friends and lovers – like Ben E King

Celebrate your own and other people’s beauty – like Alison Moyet

Indulge in your favourite sins – like the Pet Shop Boys

Open your heart to the world (and dance) – like Madonna

Enjoy time with your family however strange they are – like Level 42

Lose yourself in the music – like Los Lobos

Have freaky sex – like Prince. What? It’s achievable!

Make sure you have some crazy, crazy nights – like Kiss

Have the time of your life – like Bill Medley and Jennifer Warnes

Walk alone and rock out – like Whitesnake

…and of course, dress like it’s 1987.
